Syrian army denies used chemical weapons
BEIRUT (Reuters) - Syria's military command denied opposition reports that the army had used chemical weapons on Wednesday against districts east of Damascus, saying they were a sign of "hysteria and floundering" by President Bashar al-Assad's opponents.
The denial was issued by an officer speaking on state television. Information Minister Omran Zoabi said the allegations were "illogical and fabricated".
